Delusions of godhood

What should be the qualities of water?
How should DNA be built?
How should snowflakes be designed?
Who should be in charge of flocks of birds or schools of fish?
How should ecosystems be run?
How should the market be controlled?
How should society be run?

All the above is meaningless drivel.

Yet, a majority of people seriously consider the last two and debate them. Society and the market are emergent systems. They can't be "run", designed, or controlled, and trying to do so harms individuals, which damages the health of society and destroys the market.

Only the pathologically evil would keep trying.

  1. Reality is what it is, and not what it isn't. It just is. God/nature says so and we deal with it. That's the way it works. Indeed, to act as if you can dictate reality is a delusion of godhood.

    "How should DNA be built?"

    Humans are not created by law. Our DNA says we are what we are and not what we aren't. We exhibit certain normal and typical established behaviors that define us as human, but are forcefully regulated/dictated or criminalized by law, free individual choice and self determination. Law is basically dictating what our DNA should be when it dictates our behavior antithetical to our nature.

    Statists live in an alternate reality where humans are a different hive-like species.
